Greeks in Your Family

Hello All!

I seem to always be reading threads that mention.... My cousin is XYZ sorority or my uncle is ABC. I know there are lots of us that have many chapters represented within their families. So just out of curiosity, what GLO's are represented in your family?

I'll start!

Zeta Tau Alpha
Alpha Delta Pi
Kappa Alpha Theta

and

Sigma Nu

I found out recently that I have a second cousin that is a Pi Kappa Alpha!! Also my grandmother (by marriage) recently found some old college stuff that she was showing me, and she is an Alpha Sigma Tau!!


I know there's folks out there with way more!!

I think there have been other threads about this, but:

Mom: local sorority
Uncle: Zeta Psi
Cousin: local sorority

That's all I know of; I actually don't have too many family members who even went to college (I was the first on my dad's side to go and graduate).

Two of my older cousins are members of Delta Sigma Theta

I don't have many male cousins, and none of them are Greek, that I know of anyway.

P.S. currently working on two of my cousins that are currently college freshman.

As I posted there:

Dad: Kappa Sigma
Mom: went to a non-Greek school
Sister: Phi Mu
Her Husband: Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia
Brother: not Greek (his wife went to a non-Greek school)
My Wife: Kappa Kappa Gamma
Her Dad: Kappa Sigma
Her Mom: Pi Beta Phi
Her Sister: Zeta Tau Alpha

Add to that a grandfather and uncle (neither still living) who were Betas, an uncle who is an Alpha Tau Omega, and a cousin who is a Theta.

Me: Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., & Omega Phi Alpha
My fiance: Phi Kappa Sigma
My brother: Sigma Phi Epsilon
My cousin: Zeta Tau Alpha

To my knowledge, that's it - most of family before the present generation did not have traditional college experiences (they went later or did the commuter thing, if they went at all).

Oh, also ...

My future brother-in-law: Phi Kappa Tau
My fiance's grandfather (what is the term for that?): I don't remember the name, but a national Catholic fraternity that was later merged in to Phi Kappa Theta

My aunt is a VERY proud and active Delta-- she owns a Greek Shop in Hampton, VA

I have some distant relatives that I think are an ADPi and KAT.

My brother in law said some friends tried to get him to pledge Phi Delt when he was in college, but at that time he preferred being a hippy and playing guitar (He is over 40 now).
